2 weeks into Tune-up

Boy tune-up is slower than the first round! Two weeks into it and I've managed to lose 5 pounds. I'm still a good 7-10 pounds away from my ultimate goal so I will be continuing Bernstein for another 3 weeks to hopefully get closer to that goal. 

I'm finding that my morning samples are only showing "trace" weakly in the clinic, but when I check at home in the evening, I'm burning, so I'm not sure what's going on there. 

I went through a crazed phase last weekend where I was just in serious need of a glass of wine. I was in such a depressed "I hate this diet" mood. So I ordered one with my steak and salad dinner. Guess what? Still lost weight and was still in ketosis. So, I am going to have ONE glass of red wine every Friday to stay sane. 

Injections are PAINFUL this time around! I think what's happened is that there is less fat in that area in general. When they pinch and poke straight in it hurts less than when they go sideways. I got one sideway injection and I moving cramps all day and even difficulty breathing! 

Headaches are a daily and they've increased my potassium. 

More to come!


  1. I am starting this week. Hopefully, I reach my goal by the end of June 2014.

  2. Hi! I'm so happy to have come across your blog! By the sounds of it we have very similar body types and goals. First congrats on getting to your goal...Second much appreciation for the encouraging blog. I often wonder why more people don't blog about Dr.B.
    It's definitely a lifestyle change not a fad diet. And I think if you go back to your old ways you're gonna balloon up and that's what people don't realize.
    I've lost 14 pounds in 2 weeks and I have about 30 more to go. :))

  3. Hi! Thank you for sharing your Dr B journey. I'm seriously considering this diet but all the negativity has scared me. Did you end up reaching goal again? Do you still feel maintenance over the longer term is possible? Thanks!
